Default Sc1 SuperChip?

I've been looking for a super chip or something along those lines for awhile now with no luck. I'm mainly just looking for something to increase my redline and my top speed. Anybody know where i can find something that will do this for me?

Thanks, Aaron

Nothing can "increase the redline", as the redline is a SAFETY factor (i.e. when you rev above it, you break the engine). The best way to increase performance is to drive a DOHC car.

And there's no "superchip" for the S-car. A stand-alone PCM is the only way to improve engine control electronics.

You can increase the redline to 6500 rpm and top speed to 124 mph by swapping a 1993-2002 SC1 for a 1991-92 SC or 1993-2002 SC2

The PCM for the Saturns cannot be altered the way other cars can. In order to change Powertain control, you need to get a new PCM. Look aournd www.differentracing.com they should have some answers there. eRic's ideas is probably the best way to get what you want.

No such animal. Saturn has never released the proprietary software that runs its PCMs. Some claim to have been able to "hack" them. Personally, I would not trust the operating system and computer of my car to some computer geek in a basement somewhere...but its your car...

There is however an auto sc pcm swap. Higher topseed and i think no reve limiter.

True, but you don't really want to increase/remove the rev limiter because, well, as has been said, it's there for a reason -- plus there isn't really any power that high up. On the note of the auto PCM, there was a certain thread where someone mentioned the negative results from that swap. Something to do with the way the PCM from the auto handles fuel/timing when you let off the throttle as opposed to the way the PCM from the manual does. Suffice it to say, it's likely you could experience a performance deficit, and certainly no gain. I'll try to find the thread (if you wish to research on your own, search for something like "auto PCM swap"; you'll get loads of threads to answer your questions about the PCM swap and how there's no chip or magical pixie dust for our cars), though.

EDIT: Here is the thread I mentioned: http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...=auto+pcm+swap. The post of interest is the third one from the top (also the last one... hmmm...), by Low Saturn.
